Craig from Nevada: A tweener--forgoing the advantage of a full frame sensor and the size advantage of m43 with a rated battery life of 250. You get this for $679.

Is that enough to attract anyone other than Canon users?

More than a few Canon/Nikon users have picked up m43 as a second smaller system. I don't know if this is enough to slow that down.

Craig from Nevada: Whew. Lots of people bumming on a $229 camera. This little camera is rugged, sized correctly for travel, and takes decent pictures. It is the kind of camera you pick up before you go on vacation. It will serve you well and if gets beat up, lost or stolen, no big deal.

Oops--$329 camera. S

Craig from Nevada: From the article it appears that they finally are getting the sales volumes they need to be profitable Expect more aggressive pricing to keep product moving.

They must be moving the E-M10s. Nice price at this point. No wonder they are trying to put out a Mark II so quickly--Brand new shiny model that will be heavily discounted by Christmas.

Frankly, I was surprised at the mention of PEN sales as contributing to the increase--the bargain basement E-PL6? must be moving. At the price, it should.

I frankly thought the rest of the line was in trouble.

Looks like NASA did just fine using a point and shoot, proving once again that getting close to your subject is good technique.

In reply to:

Alex7302: It looks like a great camera! However, these high end micro 4/3 cameras are starting to get a bit ridiculous as far as price is concerned. I mean they're competent camera with really cool features. I mean for $1200 you could almost buy a sony A7II. I mean there's the benefit of the mostly cheaply priced great small lenses, which I really like, but the iso performance and lack of shallow depth of field are bummers. But I say all of this as a biased A7 user! That being said, I wish we had the same affordable lens selection as micro 4/3!

The sensor size--lens size tradeoff hasn't quite been solved yet.

Looks like Olympus got the memo. You don't need what we traditionally think of as a camera to take pictures anymore.

A move by Olympus from the camera market to the taking picture market. The product is priced to move.

Valiant Thor: This camera is kind of like inventing an electric toilet seat. You could do it if you wanted to; but why?

That ought to earn a DPReview "Gold Award"

Then what?

Craig from Nevada: A case of mistaken identity--a $500 camera masquerading as a $750 camera.

This would probably be a decent value at $499.

Wildly overpriced.

Direct link | Posted on Jun 22, 2015 at 00:56 UTC as 9th comment

LOL--the camera as we know it is becoming irrelevant. More people take pictures now than ever before and they don't need what we think of as cameras to do it.

Mirrorless and DSLR are converging to become a niche market.

Craig from Nevada: This camera is going negatively impact all the camera makers and formats. The price is a barrier right now, but that will come down.

The term "game changer" is overused, but it might be applicable in this case.

More people are taking pictures than ever before. The problem is that they are not using what we think of us as a camera to do so. Sales are down. It is a tough market. This camera makes it tougher.
